Baker Joins General Catalyst As EIR

Former Massachusetts Republican gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker will join Cambridge, MA-based venture capital firm General Catalyst Partners as an executive in residence, he revealed in an e-mail to his supporters today. “I’ll be working with them to identify small and mid-size firms—primarily in the health care world—that the firm can partner with and help succeed,” Baker, the former chief of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, said in the e-mail. Baker, who lost to Democratic Governor Deval Patrick in November, says he prefers the experience of working with entrepreneurs and small business owners to taking a leadership role a large company.
